My name is Susan Hargett, I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Texas and nationally certified. I understand reaching out for help can be uncomfortable, but I am glad you have the courage to take that first step so you may live the life you desire. I believe our own unique set of experiences colors our lens of our perception, therefore your goals should be tailored to reflect who you are. My clients have a voice, they choose the areas in their life they wish to address and which goals they would like to accomplish. We work together to come up with reasonable and attainable goals and find ways to achieve them that spurs your growth.
My roots are in yoga and meditation/mindfulness (since 2004) and I utilize a variety of techniques from multiple counseling modalities such as: person centered, solution-focused, eco therapy, and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), although having a strong therapeutic relationship, I believe, is the most important part of therapy.
I am skilled in working with depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and personality disorders. I am continuously working to expand my skills by becoming familiar with the most up-to-date, evidence-based practices.
If you feel I would be a good fit for you, let's talk and get started on your journey. I look forward to meeting and working with you!
- Stress, Anxiety
- Self esteem
- Bipolar disorder
- Coping with life changes
I also have experience in Addictions, Relationship issues, Family conflicts, Grief, Sleeping disorders, Anger management, Compassion fatigue, ADHD

Very good listener. Easy to talk to. Encouraging.
Susan is wonderful we have talked a lot about lots of different stuff such as procrastination, organizing, depression, gargoyles that only I see, voice only I hear, wounds I get when when the alien takes me. Anxiety, my kids I am currently homeschooling my back surgery, my MS we have lots of things we talk about. I always feel better when I say good bye.
I've been counseling with Susan for a few months now, and all I can say is, "amazing". She checks in if she hasn't heard from me a while (in between appts), follows up if I sent a distress message but didn't respond back to her, and best of all, really listens. I've been in counseling off & on for about 6 years (about 6 counselors averaged out) and she is right at the top. She has a lot of compassion, and asks questions both to understand and to help me think through my issues.
I had my doubts about online counseling, but Susan has been so awesome! I feel like she really hears me and genuinely wants to offer her support and guidance. I'm sold and am so glad Better Help matched me with her!
Susan has been so helpful and very timely.
Amazing! Listens and gives me things to think about in a way I may not think of, like she makes me think outside the box a lot. I LOVE that about Ms. Susan! She's great!
I have enjoyed my time with Susan. She sets a very relaxed and open conversation setting. She is great with keeping in touch. I appreciate the assignments she gives, which help the conversation be that more interactive. I enjoy her daily quotes. Thanks Susan!
I have been speaking with Susan for a few months now. She is a very attentive listener as well gives sound, reasonable advice. I highly recommend.
Very professional, responds in a timely manner, and super friendly! Highly recommended.
I have seen counselors in the past, but none as wonderfully competent as Susan. She was able to very quickly see the heart of my problem and immediately start sending me resources. Each resource has been spot on, full of helpful information I was immediately able to implement in my life. While the circumstances of my life are still very much the same, my ability to live my life is already so much better than it was when I first contacted her. I am still very early in the process, I believe, but I appreciate the tools she's already given me.
I have also very much appreciated her complete lack of judgmental attitude, which is helping me heal my own judgmental attitudes. Funny how that works. She's very easy to talk to via video chat, and it's clear how much she is invested in me as a client vs her own ego or need to be right. (And yet, she has been right and right on time with each new tool she gives me.) I'm very thankful that I was paired with her from the start.
Working with Susan has been incredibly helpful to me. What I appreciate the most about her approach is that it is multi-modal - she offers multiple options for sessions (messaging, live chat, phone, etc.), as well as multiple options/viewpoints in working through things. When I was stuck in a panicky, obsessive thought spiral and reached out, Susan responded with a concrete activity that I could do to better understand what was going on and help get in front of it. I feel like my outlook, relationships, and quality of life have all improved from my time working with Susan, and I appreciate the balance she has helped me find.
So far, I strongly enjoy my counseling sessions with Susan!! She has really been helpful and a very enjoyable person to talk to!! THANK YOU, SUSAN!!
Susan is very easy to talk to and does everything in her power to make sure you feel heard and understood, which I think is an important trait. She’s very quick to respond and I feel as though she truly cares about her patients a lot.
Susan is amazing in her insights and conversational approach. I am so glad and blessed to have found her and started healing with her guidance.
Susan is an extremely kind and caring person. Her approach to sessions is very calming and non-judgmental. She has been extremely helpful so far in recommending ideas and resources for reframing my thoughts and building better, healthier habits.
Susan has been wonderful! I wasn’t sure what to expect when starting BetterHelp, but she’s made me feel completely comfortable since day one. Super helpful and a fantastic listener!
5 stars, very satisfied.
